“Blorange” is the New Black: That Hair Color Everyone’s Buzzing About

Whoever said, “Orange is the new black,” had no way of knowing how popular “blorange” hair would be in 2017. In case you haven’t been keeping up with the #TrendingTopics, “blorange” hair is a peachy hue that’s blowing up all over social media. Some sources claim that it’s short for “blood orange,” while others swear that it’s the intersection of “blonde” and “orange.” No matter where the bizarre word came from, the hair color is a dreamy shade of pink that’s fierce, fresh, and flirty to boot—and everyone’s buzzing about it.

“Can I Pull Off Blorange Hair?”

One of the best things about blorange hair is how remarkably versatile it is. No matter what your skin tone is, this knockout hair color is bound to make you glow like an A-list celeb.

Not sure if it’s right for your hair’s texture? Don’t bite your nails over it—blorange hair works with just about every hair type and texture. Thin hair, straight hair, thick hair, wavy hair. It really doesn’t matter what you start with. When you add blorange to your life, you end up with showstopping hair that’s perfectly on-trend and en pointe.

“Will My Blorange Hair Fade Out Quickly?”

Another great thing about blorange hair is that it’s already a sort of pastel shade, so hair color fade-out is not a huge concern.

Obviously, the more bold you go with your hair color, the more careful you’ll need to be about your haircare routine. Rinsing with lukewarm water, rather than hot water, and using color-safe, sulfate-free shampoos will keep your blorange hair looking hot far longer.

As an added measure, once a week, slather on a quick color-protecting hair masque to maintain optimal vibrancy, shine, health, and color.

“Do I Have to Commit to Going Full Blorange?”

Unless blorange plans to #PutARingOnIt, you definitely don’t have to commit to it.

If you’re curious about blorange, you can always dip your toes in the water with a little dip-dye. Ask your favorite hairstylist to give you partial blorange ombré or sombré to let you test out the look.

Don’t totally love it? You can always chop off the ends and give a sexy, shorter haircut a shot.

Either way, you have nothing to lose when you try out blorange hair.

“How Do I Go Blorange?”

All it really takes to go blorange is walking into your favorite local hair salon with a picture of the shade you’d like to emulate.

It’s as simple as that.
